I had a pretty good reading month, I almost got my TBR for the month with one exception I did not get to Lovecraft County I was reading too much horror and needed a break.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson – My Classic of the Month, excellent Gothic Horror that will take you back to childhood horrors.
Ghost by Jason Reynolds – if you liked the Hate U give this is one you should check out, not as Race heavy but still really powerful.
A House at the Bottom of the Lake by Josh Malerman – a creepy story with the horrors of first love feelings, the ending really made me think.
Circe by Madeline Miller – despite giving it 4 stars it’s in my top five reads of this year, A tale about Circe the witch from Homer’s The Odyssey
